Cut too late by the Dolphins to land an opportunity with another team and ineligible for duty on the practice squad due to 13 regular-season game appearances in 2009, former Dolphins quarterback Pat White is taking a different approach.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, White will be signing with the Kansas City Royals.
He’ll sign, we’re told, a minor league contract. The Royals understand that White remains interested in playing football, and they will be flexible in letting him return to football if/when an opportunity arises.
It’s our understanding that White, in theory, would have an interest in the UFL. The problem is that, with only five teams and the season starting soon, he’d be relegated to a backup role, at best.
White has been picked multiple times in the baseball amateur draft, most recently by the Yankees in 2009, in the 48th round. (This year, Seahawks receiver Golden Tate was picked by the San Francisco Giants in round 50.)
